At least two sets have recently sold on ebay for $800+ each. Why not sell nine of yours and make an extra $3K or so over your purchase price?

Because I haven't purchased anything. And they are not mine.

I'm assuming your card will be charged. Mine hasn't been charged yet for the one set I got, but I can't imagine they'd screw up so much that they'd never charge us. Even if they forget to at first, they do have our CC numbers.

I have no problem being charged for the one set I ordered but not for the other nine I didn't. I would love to send them back but they don't seem to know how to go about this. Even if they charge me for ten sets...when did I become a distributor for them. I have no time or wherewithal to put them on ebay or peddle them at a flea market. I ordered one and expect to pay for one and not have a finanancial and time hassle. If they can't get their business straight turn it over to people who can. Obviously they haven't made a dime on this propisition if noone has been charged yet. It seems flat rate internet media is the way to go. No overhead. But jeez they have had over 45 years to get it together and it still isn't happening. Why am I so pissed off at something I've been waiting years for? Because that's what they've always done best. Sorry. That's just how I feel right now.

I see where you're coming from, as I too sometimes get so frustrated about something that I just dig in my heels.

But just in case you are able to relax a bit over the weekend, I'll say that you'd actually be doing a favor to the poor beleaguered staff at GDP if you didn't make them find a way to take them back. You'd also be doing a favor to the folks who buy them from you on ebay, b/c they wouldn't pay $800 for something that wasn't worth $800 to them; and by tossing an extra nine sets on the market, you ought to bring the going price down a bit too. And all those good deeds would net you about $3K for I'm guessing 10-15 hours of your own time to list and ship all nine sets (less, if you have some experience with ebay). Just food for thought...
